Buy Cheap Cell Phones Online Without Contract

Updated on July 15, 2011

One of the most popular types of cell phones for sale online are unlocked mobile phones.

The question: what exactly are unlocked phones?

Unlocked cell phones are basically cell phones, well, without a contract. They are phones that have no distinct carrier, giving you the flexibility you need (you can join a company or, if you want, add prepaid minutes. The choice is yours.) In recent years unlocked phones without contract have become a popular thing to purchase online. Cheap phones for sale without contract are some of the best cheap cell phones for sale online; you just need to know where to look.

Inexpensive unlocked cell phones, unlocked discount cell phones, and all cheap new cell phones without a contract have a few things in common, making them an excellent cell phone without contract to buy online.

You just need to know where to look and what to look for.


Cheap Unlocked Mobile Phones For Sale

The first thing you need to know before you go looking for the best cheap unlocked cell phones is, well, what exactly to look for.  Over the last few years there have been many new cell phone companies and services that have produced hundreds of new phones; while this kind of versatility of options is a good thing it can also be a bad thing. 

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Price:  What kind of price are you willing to pay for an unlocked phone for sale online.  I mean, you want to find the cheapest unlocked phone without contract, or at least one that is cheap and has all the features you need.  Have a budget and stick to it. 
  • Type of Cell Phone:  This is probably the most important part!  Why?   The type of cheap unlocked phone you buy online is important if you want to eventually tie that phone to a cell phone contract.   For example if your family has a bunch of Rogers cell phone contracts, but you don't want one yet, you may want to think about getting an unlocked Rogers phone. 
  • Features:   What kind of features do you want in your cheap phone for sale without contract.  Many inexpensive unlocked cell phones lack other features that cell phone contracts give you; look around, compare with price, and then decide.
  • Smartphone?:  Do you want an unlocked android smartphone without contract?
